This is a very delicious treat. It is mostly a kid's dessert, but don't get me wrong, adults might enjoy it too. This is a Halloween, birthday, or fun treat that everyone can enjoy. :)

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the chocolate sandwich cookies into a resealable plastic zipper bag, and crush with a rolling pin into crumbs. For a more mudlike appearance, untwist the cookies and scrape off the creme filling before crushing cookies.

  • Whisk together the chocolate pudding mix with the milk in a bowl, stirring for 2 minutes. Sprinkle about 1/3 of the crushed sandwich cookie crumbs into the bottom of a serving bowl, and spoon the chocolate pudding over the crumbs. Smooth out the top of the pudding, then top with the rest of the chocolate cookie crumbs to resemble dirt. Poke gummy worms halfway into the dirt. Refrigerate until serving.

Kids love this! I made this for some pre-school kids I was watching who were learning about gardening one week. I also put it in individual clear plastic cups and layered the cookie crumbs and pudding. Read More

Always a hit. The last time I made this over the weekend I put in a layer of cool-whip in the bottom for something fun and different and I added an extra package of worms too. Ever single person had at least seconds or thirds! Read More

This was incredibly easy to make and was a huge hit at my friend's son's birthday party. Both kids and adults went back for seconds! I read another suggestion and layered light cool whip cookie pieces chocolate pudding cookies and worms. I'll make this again and again. Read More

Made for my daughter's Halloween party at her daycare and it went over very well! My daycare provider LOVED this idea and wants to do this each year now! I crushed an entire bag of a store brand sandwich cookie with chocolate filling which I didn't remove because it really resembled muddy dirt (plus I liked the consistency it gave). I used individual clear plastic cups so each of the kids would have their own. I layered the "dirt" first then a middle layer of pudding and a final top layer of dirt again. Fun to make and eat these will continue on as a yearly Halloween tradition! Read More

It's just fun to say you're eating mud and worms!. It's a cute and easy dessert but a little bland. Maybe I'll use a different brand pudding mix next time. Read More
